Hi everyone, I have just returned from another very productive trip to
Walt Disney World last week. I was able to attend the very last Pirate
& Princess Party of the season and record the special features
including the all new floats from Disney’s Enchanted Adventures Parade
(see below). I also recorded footage for my upcoming Walt Disney World
‘Class of 1971‘ title featuring all the
Magic Kingdom opening day attractions as they appear today.
The Epcot Thing:
While in Florida I was also able to meet with Ron Schneider (the first
and original strolling Dreamfinder & Figment) and plan our event at ‘
